What a Difference Four Years Make...

Global Warming?

September 16, 2005

Global warming 'past the point of no return'!!!

"...The greatest fear is that the Arctic has reached a "tipping point" beyond which nothing can reverse the continual loss of sea ice and with it the massive land glaciers of Greenland, which will raise sea levels dramatically."

Sea Ice Ends Year at Same Level as 1979

"...Each year, millions of square kilometers of sea ice melt and refreeze. However, the mean ice anomaly -- defined as the seasonally-adjusted difference between the current value and the average from 1979-2000, varies much more slowly. That anomaly now stands at just under zero, a value identical to one recorded at the end of 1979, the year satellite record-keeping began."


Now, can we dump this silly fad and get on with the next one?

Which fad? Blaming Bush for everything that has gone wrong since the fall of Adam and Eve, or global warming?

I don't think either are fads

I agree with Mr. C. They're not fads, they're raison d'etre for many on the left.
